Three weeks from today, Americans without employer-sponsored health insurance will be able to buy insurance through state marketplaces. The idea for these exchanges, a key component of the Affordable Care Act, was to provide a way for uninsured people to obtain coverage and to enhance affordability for low income buyers through federal subsidies. Polls suggest there are many questions about how these exchanges will operate, and how the affordable care act will affect, if at all, employer-sponsored health benefit plans. Guest host Tom Gjelten and his guests discuss the state health insurance marketplaces and shifts in the overall health insurance market.
